[Review] Cable Load Transfer with Claw in Battery 36 a 100 A / h de 3 Meters – KITEC-CTK-03

The Cable Load Transfer with Claw in Battery 36 a 100 A / h de 3 Meters, modelo KITEC-CTK-03, was acquired in Shop Mechanic. With this type of cable can be started in a car whose battery is discharged, using the battery from another car as cargo donor. This procedure is popularly known as pacifier, and as the cable Pacifier cable.

Motivation

On the afternoon of a Saturday these I put the car on the street to wash. In noite, when I went out with him, the starter just did not work. The battery had not been charged enough. I figured she had pifado.

So I tried to use my Mini Powerbank with Jump Starter for Car and motorcycle. Did not work! Ironically his drums crashed before the car.

On Monday I called the self-electric, they came and changed the battery. They put a new and got everything right. ordered a Moura desalination vez, because that was in the car since I bought it was Heliar.

Just then I remembered one of my hesitation that probably caused the battery discharge, possibly still was not dead, despite having a few years. I usually leave the control of the automatic headlights, for he calls alone when it is dark, so I do not need to move the headlight switch was not the stupid law that makes the headlights need to be on during the day.

With the headlights on auto, they also light up when the car is unlocked, and also when the door is open. there was my hesitation: as I passed the vacuum cleaner in the car, with open doors, the headlights were on and I did not even realize, including fog lights… by 20 or 30 minutes.

This was all in the garage. After that I still managed to start the car twice: to put it on the street and to change it position. In the first match I've noticed that something was wrong, the starter seemed a bit slower, but at the time or I associated with the possible discharge.

So yes, possibly I spent R $ 390,00 a new battery without. The employee auto-electrical connected only other battery to start the car, He tested the alternator and deduced that the battery was bad. It is possible that she was just discharged, I never know.

Because of that I decided to purchase a charge transfer cable. If I had one at the time, suffice use another car as cargo donor to start the car and let the altenador charge the battery. After some time loading I already know it was only a discharge or if the battery was even pifada.

Select the Load Transfer Cable with Claw in Battery 36 a 100 A / h de 3 Meters – KITEC-CTK-03

Chose the Cable Load Transfer with Claw in Battery 36 a 100 A / h de 3 Meters, modelo KITEC-CTK-03 because it was on sale for $ 42,21. The announcement in Shop Mechanic informs that it has a gauge 16 mm², What struck me as quite reasonable. I checked the price at other stores and the same cable was in the range of R $ 90,00, so the promotion was real. I bought it.

Unboxing and disappointment

A Shop Mechanic It led 3 days to post the product, and he arrived the day after posting. To catch the KITEC-CTK-03 in hand soon came to disappointment. Only the cable sheath is thick, the conductor itself is very thin. Certainly it is very far from having 16 mm². Can not get even half of it.

Cable size can make all the difference. Many people report having success in starting in a car with thinner cables, but many also did not have. There are cable heating up reports and even melting the cover. There is not much consensus on what the ideal gauge, but in general it comes to 35mm² to ensure operation in any car and small truck. Cable of this gauge is not in any charge transfer cable ready, unfortunately. Others speak of a minimum of 16 mm². Anyway, the KITEC-CTK-03 does not get it.

In the background there are many variables involved, including type of engine and the discharged battery, even not being sufficient to move the starter alone, You can still provide some current to help the process along with the donor battery.

Devolution

Faced with the clear specification of misleading Kitec, reproduced by Shop Mechanic, I decided to make the return of the product, unused and within the withdrawal deadline.

I contacted the mechanic shop on 04/05, but they only answered on 07/05. I sent out to them on 08/05 and he arrived there the day 09/05. Until today, 17/05, a Shop Mechanic has not repaid me. Furthermore, I had to pay for return freight (R$ 23,50), because they offered a post code. By law should afford both freight in case of cancellation within the statutory period, but I do not know if it will happen.

Final Considerations

Fica a minha recomendação negativa para o Cable Load Transfer with Claw in Battery 36 a 100 A / h de 3 Meters, modelo KITEC-CTK-03 pela especificação enganosa, and also for the Shop Mechanic, pela morosidade em me reembolsar.

Thereafter, acabei decidindo adquirir 8 metros de cabo flexível de 35mm² e 4 garras jacaré no comércio local e construí o meu próprio cabo de transferência de carga. Mas isto é assunto para outro artigo, wait…

Cabo muito ruim. Fez bem devolver. Seria uma boa um teste do Inmetro nas principais marcas do mercado.

O meu cabo também me deixou na mão da última vez. Já havia me socorrido antes, mas depois dessa não confio mais. Tive que acionar o seguro que com um caminhão reboque de bateria 24V utilizando o mesmo cabo que o meu conseguiu fazer pegar meu motor. Como Fabrício disse, tem muitas variáveis envolvidas nisso. I had already thought of doing my own cable, but never put into practice. Now await your post about how you made your.
